DONATELLA&ME, that’s the title of the thoroughly thought-through social media campaign that was launched for the new e-commerce website of Versace.
For this event, we, but also a few other bloggers had the opportunity to play dress-up in a few Versace creations.
Not the easiest of tasks since the outfits are, well, rather colorful and loud. Today we’ll show you a round up of the Versace outfits:
Gala Gonzalez from AmLul is wearing her magical Versace dress together with a hand full of bananas and an incredibly natural smile. Her facial expression suggests that she shoved one of the bananas up her behind. Sexy.
During Madrid Fashion Week we got to experience Gala ‘live’. We confronted her with a made up rumor of having an affair with Aznar, a buff politician. You can read how she reacted in the Interview.
The ever happy Susie Bubble and the Cherry Blossom Girl were smart enough to show their outfits in black and white. That’s always been an intelligent solution. The guys obviously couldn’t come up with such a thought-through approach:
‘Uber blogger’ BryanBoy poses in a lady-like manner with a Versace purse. Pure testosterone. Posing and outfit would probably cause a collective erection in the lady boy paradise Pattaya.
Prince Pelayo from KateLovesMe is rocking as always. That guy can really wear anything. He would even look stylish in a Miss Piggy costume.
Jakob already described my outfit to the point, I have nothing to add:
“David is wearing a wild mix of colors, leather, lamb fur and green fur. More over-the-top is probably impossible. It’s the Christopher Street Day version of the Clockwork Orange style.”
However, he didn’t exercise any self-criticism, so let’s catch up on that. Read a critical review of his Versace look below:
Jakob is wearing a red and pink ensemble, his pants are tucked into the boots and glorious medals decorate the revers of his jacket.
If head forest ranger Stefan Leitner from ZDF TV show Forsthaus Falkenau ever comes out of the closet, leaves his picture-perfect family to go into hiding in the forest with a 4-liter bottle of poppers to go wild boar hunting he would probably look something like this.

On the 9th of january is is finally happening: the fashion show circus.
As usual it starts with the London Collections: Men (9th – 12th of january). The LC:M has a gigantic potencial. It is growing year by year. For the AW season 2015, the LC:M is expanded by one day.
All in all, 60 labels are taking part during the men’s fashion week. New in participating: the accessory-label Universal-Works, Nigel Cabourn and the Danish mens-wear label SOULLAND. Already last season, Silas Adler from SOULLAND resigned from hosting a show during the Copenhagen fashion week, now taking part in London.
Here are the DANDY DIARY highlights during the London Collections: Men:
Friday, 9th of january, 3 PM: MAN Shows: The initiative by TOPMAN and Fashion EAST is the very platform for young talents. A complete list of today’s successful fashion-designers, who started with the MAN shows, would burst the blog-spot (among them: Astrid Andersen, JW Andersen, Agi & Sam and, and, and). In january Disney-fan Bobby Abley, Nicomeda Talavera and Liam Hodges, whom we introduced recently, are going to present their fashion during the MAN shows.
Friday, 9th of january, 3.30 PM: KIT NEALE KIT NEALE is at the beginning of his career. But his installations and designs are bristling of the amount of ideas and humour, therefore a ‘Must-Go’ during the LC:M. Our favourite piece by KIT NEALE: a sweater, on which he – in the style of street-rug – eternalised his London hood Peckham. Let’s see, what funny things he thought of for his AW 2015 collection.
Saturday, 10th of january, 12.00 AM, ASTRID ANDERSEN ASTRID ANDERSEN designs sportluxe-designs. A mix of conventional sportswear-pieces (tank-tops, tracksuits and basketball-shorts) and luxurious materials, as mink. Her tank-tops with laces are legendary. A fusion between compressed man-hood and femininity. Since her design-cooperation with TOPMAN, there was another massive boom for the Danish designer when it comes to popularity.
Sunday, 11th of january, 2PM, MOSCHINO We are not amazed by everything that is done by MOSCHINO‘s designer Jeremy Scott. Either his designs (and: ideas behind it) are extremely genius or crazily off target, but never boring, therefore don’t miss it.
Monday, 12th of january, 11:00 AM, CRAIG GREEN
CRAIG GREEN has earned his skills at the famous Central Saint Martins College. He originally studied art at the CSM, but at some point he discovered his – thank god – passion for fashion. His last fashion shows at the LC:M caused big emotions. The front-row was crying, fashion journalist Tim Blanks mentioned a ‘fashion moment’.
Monday, 12th of january, 5 PM, NASIR MAZHAR
NASIR MAZHAR, London’s ‘KING OF COOLNESS’. The ex-hair-dresser has accomplished what other famous brands are after for decades: to create his own world (music, fashion. lifestyle). He influenced the chavy sportswear-look. Mazhar has been sending out muscular boys and ghetto-chics on the catwalk, while playing consequent hard hip hop tracks, for many seasons. ALL hip kids worship him. We do so too, of-course.

A Dandy sees red
After metrosexuality and spornosexuality, is it lumbersexuality going to be in?
Media as The Guardian, The Daily Beast and Buzzfeed presented ‘lumbersexual’ as the ‘next big thing’. Men with enormous beards and bellies in lumber-shirts, in work-boots, with wool-beanies on their heads and a freshly tapped beer in their hand.
But is that really the new trend? Men, who combine checked patterns with checked patterns, and who look like they have chucked some trees in the wood. No, not really. The look has been existing in the gay-scene for years (‘bears’ or ‘cubs’).
Plus we already know about the core-elements of the look (beard, lumber-shirt) from the hipster-scene. The picture (view the photo), which was used to express lumber-sexuality in a photo, has also been used to present the usual example of a hipster to their readers.
The hipster already was an anti-movement to the metro. The man became a man again. Sun-studios, picked eye-browes or shaved chests – all in all a no-go for the hipster. ‘Lumbersexuality’ is therefore no new anti-movement to metrosexuality, as it is celebrated in the media, but simply a continuation of the hipster-movement.
Therefore an old, fat hipster, who is drinking beer the whole day and who is just to distinguish by experts of ‘gay bears’. Therefore: no ‘next big thing’!
